Sebastian Gangemi, Trumbull\u2019s head boys soccer coach of 14 years, died Wednesday after a yearlong battle with leukemia, Trumbull High School announced. He was 64. Gangemi won four FCIAC championships as Trumbull\u2019s head coach and, in 2011, coached Trumbull to its only CIAC state championship game, a 2-1 loss to Pomperaug in 2011. He was diagnosed with leukemia in April of 2018. Gangemi, a longtime Trumbull resident who owned a service station in town, continued to coach as he received treatment. \u201cAll these years, I\u2019ve loved to have been able to give to my boys,\u201d he said during an appreciation night held by the school in October, which raised money for leukemia awareness and research. \u201cThis is my school, the school where my children graduated. Trumbull soccer means everything to me. \u201cI just love the guys. That\u2019s why I do it. I enjoy it every year.\u201d Today Trumbull lost a Coach near and dear to Trumbull Athletics and the entire community. Sebe Gangemi touched so many hearts while here at Trumbull and he will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace to an incredible coach and an even better person.\u00a0#SebeStrong\u2764\ufe0f#EaglePride Trumbull won Gangemi\u2019s fourth league title over Danbury,\u00a01-0 in overtime on Jason Weinstein\u2019s goal. \u201cOh man, going through what I am going through this year, this is beautiful,\u201d Gangemi said afterward. \u201cNeither team deserved to lose. In the first half we had them, in the second half they outplayed us but in overtime, I thought we had them the whole time. It was a great game between two great teams.\u201d \u201cIf I have to lose to anybody, losing to Sebbi this year is kind of fits the bill,\u201d Danbury coach Anthony Howard said afterward. \u201cHe has obviously had a lot on his plate this year and I think he is an example to everybody that there is more to life than soccer. He is going through a lot but it shows you the impact of high school athletics. It gives enjoyment to players and coaches and I want to congratulate Sebbi and his boys. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced. This post will be updated.
